How to end child marriage Action strtagies for Prevention and Protection


  
Abstract

  Girls who marry as children are often more susceptible to the health risks associated with early sexual initiation and child bearing, including HIV and obstetric fistula. Child marriage is a harmful traditional practice that perpetuates an unrelenting cycle of gender inequality, sickness and poverty. ICRW outlines successful community interventions that reduce child marriage rates.
